Quality and Differences of Water Cooler water

By silverfina

Hello Everyone,

I have just bought a water cooler and am now looking into the best quality water to buy.

I bought a few bottles from a small indian shop downstairs called Safa - Pure Drinking Water. BUT to my horror the sales man told me that it is plant water which i have been told is full of chemicals and basically the same as tap water??!!

The reason I bought the water cooler was so that I can have GOOD quality water with essential minerals needed by the body. Nothing fancy, but pure clean water.

Can anyone advise what my options are and which brands I should be looking into?

Thanks so much :)

I saw some comments about Almas water here, they might be good before but now the service is very bad. Bottles are old and low quality. They don't deliver water regularly and doesn't care if the customer is out of water. At time of sale, staff keeps chasing you and then stop answering when not delivering. Delivery head also doesn't reply and dont care about customers.

Avoid almas water and go with other companies like Qatar Oasis or Marwa .. much better quality and peace of mind.

it is true that most companies use treated tap water and Rayyan use mineral water, however if you look at teh sodium (N) content then Rayyan water is high compared to teh treated tap water.

Rayyan Bottled Water, the only mineral water from Qatar.

Manal, Safa, Nestle are all treated water (tap water treated).

I think almost same quality. full of chemicals and basically the same as tap water... the difference between bottles water and tap water here is bottles water come in bottles.. That's why they call bottles water. :)
